So glad Oregon finally lets me pump my own gas. I'm not an infant. What with universal decrim that state is going in the right direction.

legally smoking pot in the gorgeous redwood forests there sounds like a damn good time tbh. I want to go back.

There’s plenty of action in the luke-warm-hatch market in the US.
I'd like to buy a hatch when my Mz5 finally gives up the ghost. Wife's not super on board with the idea, but as long as it has an automatic, she probably won't care (because she can still use it if the Ody is out for any reason). Honestly, I feel like there are a LOT more 3- and 5-door hatches in all market levels than there were when I was a bachelor (and more likely to buy one).

6 injections in the spine today. Fun, fun. And the best part is this is a preliminary blocker that wears off after 6 hours and I'll have to do this a second time before getting the for-real ablation. Can't wait.

I'm still sad these are auto only.

That makes even less sense. Oh well...I wasn't going to buy one, anyway.
The ID3 makes the base golf obsolete in other markets. Bear in mind we will probably be the last market that manufacturers target with ICE cars (well, SUVs to be precise). VW can't keep making a full range of IC vehicles just for the US.

I hadn't thought about new models being introduced as replacements. That makes more sense. Just seemed odd to only offer the slightly hopped-up version of a hatchback. Normally, it's the base model that's the only one offered.

Getting the boy packed for hockey camp. Little dude is in for a rude awakening this week, lol

Sure but everything is a little faster now. The GTI is slightly better than most other manufacturers base-ish vehicles.

It's likely the base model doesn't sell as well, besides, base models have the lowest profit margins.

Everything is upmarket now.

I see what you're saying. It's contrary to the traditional sales model.
